I purchased some Hammer Sustained Energy, based on recommendations both here and from the LBS. I notice that it has 112 mg of Sodium per serving. Is that enough, given that I'll take a bar or in organized rides, be sure to have some pretzels, etc? I also bought some Raspberry gel while I was there to try out.

Recent scientific literature suggests sodium concentrations of 680 to 1150 mg/L for prolonged endurance activities. I was having some hydration problems last season and switched to the Power Bar Beverage System and have had really good success with the product. It has 160 mg per 8 oz serving.PB teamed up with Cris Carmichael to create the Endurance and Recovery beverages. I haven't tried the Recovery drink yet but have heard good things about it.
